Abstract: One of the more unusual crops being grown successfully in WA - on the Ord - is Indian sandalwood (Santalum album). Plantations have been established by Tropical Forestry Services Pty Ltd (TFS), a WA company that manages them on behalf of retail and institutional investors. In fact, TFS has the distinction of managing the largest sustainable supply of Indian sandalwood in the world. It has 7000 ha in WA , is currently developing 3000 ha in the NT and is looking to expand into Queensland. In this article John Doble, water manager with TFS and based at Kununurra, provides some background to sandalwood and its irrigation management challenges.
